Gophers Fall to Mankato in Boston

Boston, MA – For the second-straight season, the Minnesota State Mavericks have ended the Minnesota Gophers’ season in the NCAA Tournament.

There’s a lot to talk about with the Big Ten title game, and only a small portion of it has to do with the play on the ice.

Gophers Advance to Big Ten Title Game with 3-2 Win Over Penn State

Minneapolis, MN – “Hopefully that was our clunker.” Gopher coach Bob Motzko was critical of his Gopher team following their semifinal victory against Penn State Saturday night, and his assessment was not inaccurate. However, despite the shaky performance, Minnesota (22RW-9RL-2OTW-2OTL Overall) was able to sneak past the Nittany Lions (16-19-1-1) to advance to the championship game next weekend against Michigan. Said Motzko: “We survived it, and you have to do that in one-and-done tournaments.” While […]
